16volt – carla’s tarantulas lyrics


carla: so i had a little brunch, lunch

eric: had a few c-cktails?

carla: everything, everything
you know

eric: yeah

carla: no not today ’cause they were a little green by georgetown so we didn’t risk it
you have to put them in the oven to ripen
and then when you want the pomegranates and all that other stuff that we bought presidiums
you have to put bananas by your vegetables for your fruits to ripen ’cause there’s a gas that comes off

eric: goes off? it explodes?

carla: goes off the bananas but it actually speeds the ripening process so you know you don’t know produce

eric: well, the life cycle of a banana, yeah i mean

carla: you know, you can um get high off the skins, did you ever try that?

eric: really? you smoke the skins?

carla: yeah, i think my brother tried that, no, i’m kidding

eric: i never smoked the skins before

carla: no no, it wasn’t him but it still the uh, what you have to do is you there is a oil in the skins or something that if you burn it
you know what that was?
you know that banana skins are poisonous?

eric: yeah, might be

carla: you know why?
cause the tarantulas

eric: tarantulas?

carla: they do, the tarantulas

eric: from mexico?

carla: dude don’t you guys read national geographic around here?

eric: yeah, i used to see the nice pictures of naked black women

carla: uganda, you got it
so anyway, um i had a uganda party over the other day they, still don’t know how to put their clothes on
they don’t even have zippers nowadays

eric: whos that? the tarantulas?

carla: no, they use banana skins
so anyway, uh they’re slippery, you know so don’t ever leave banana peels out because you could slide, like in the air, double toe loop
i just watched ice skating, you guys are psychotic you have like, no idea what’s going on in reality

eric: i have no clue what’s going on in ice skating

carla: you do too
